For centuries, three unique pods of orcas have hunted chinook salmon along the northwestern Pacific coast. These killer whales are top predators in one of the world's richest marine ecosystems, one that stretches from the western continental shelf to the continental divide, with the world's top producing chinook salmon river at its epicenter. Yet wild chinook salmon here are increasingly scarce. The orcas are going hungry, their numbers dwindling along with their primary source of food. Extinction looms for both species. Can the dammed be redeemed?
